    PDF Export with RadChart for Silverlight

    Every now and then when discussing the RadChart export options with customers, we receive the inquiry whether it is possible to export the control to PDF as well. The answer is – YES, it is definitely possible! While the chart control itself does not provide this feature out-of-the-box, you can easily build upon its export-to-image functionality and export it to PDF using our Documents Format Providers (also part of the RadControls for Silverlight suite). Basically, all you need to do is construct a document model based on the contents you want to export, and then pass the document to the PdfFormatProvider. Note...

The real value in the RadTimeBar control, however, is in the integration scenarios that it offers with other controls from RadControls for Silverlight and WPF.  By utilizing data-centric controls like RadGridView and RadChart with the RadTimeBar, your “birds-eye view”...

    Highlighting Adjacent Points with RadChart for WPF

    February 02, 2011 Share
    There are times when we run into a scenario in which we need point selection on a chart.  Luckily, RadChart for WPF and Silverlight already has this feature - but what if you need to find the closest point to where you selected on a chart?  And what if you have multiple chart series that you are doing this with?  Normally, this would be a bit of a challenge as this involves figuring out where the user clicked, what is around it, etc. Luckily for us, we have charting wizards like Manol Donev on our team and an aggressive release cycle here at Telerik.
